Babyliss Oval curlers .. You have to try it !

One of the latest trends to hit the high street are oval curlers. Yes the oval curler is taking the beauty industry by storm! Since being released early this year the new innovation is fast becoming a stand up competitor against the conventional round curling tongs. Why could this be you ask ? Well, one the main features to this wand is the curl it gives you. If you have ever wanted Hollywood glam Kim kardashians waves this is the tool for you! This classic look has been at the heart of every major event with countless celebs rocking these natural elegant waves. Frequently requested in all salons up and down the country the oval curler is allowing us to get this high glam look at home. 

The Babyliss wand Inparticular heats up to 200°C, and the barrel is ceramic coated so no pulling on the hair. It has Advanced Ceramics technology for ultra fast heat up and heat recovery. There are five different heat settings from 140°C, meaning  if you have finer hair you don't have to use a damaging high heat, but if you have thick hair, you can use a higher temperature to get a greater effect. The wand also has a plastic cool tip, which prevents burnt fingers, and the bottom of the wand has a heat rest to protect your work surface. It also has an auto shut off, so it automatically turns off after 72 minutes. All helpful handy features. 

The wand has a few diffrent looks you can create from soft brushed out waves, to more defined set looking curls. It all depends on the look you want to achieve. Brushing out the curles will give you a softer wave and can even look nicer the next day as the hair sofens into it's style. Taking smaller sections and applying a hair spray will give a more defined curl rather than a wave. The looks are very easy to achieve anyone can do this at home! Not only is it simple and quick but the waves really do last for a good 3-4 days using dry shampoo.

 Being a salon stylist myself I was egar to give this new styling innovation a go see below how I got on with it and just how easy it is to achieve this look at home.
